The Faceless Apparitions of Vyolynce is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by That Guy with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 24.404 billion Vyos enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowlands. The average income tax rate is 16%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Vyolynce's radio stations, the people of Vyolynce are renowned for their nihilistic attitudes, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vyolynce's national animal is the shadow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the soul.

Vyolynce is ranked 1st in Darkest Corners of the Mind and 49th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 829 Dawkins.
